FRANCO BENONI DEFENSE PDF

Anyone for the Franco-Benoni? It was played against me in the preliminary round of the 5th European Team Correspondence Championship, which obliged me to research it in depth. I soon found that authors writing on the French Defence do not consider Benoni books do not bother with it either, for White need not play c2-c4 and if the e-file is opened which often happens the central pawn structure is quite different. The line can also arise via 1 e4 c5 2 d4 e6 but again there is little help to be had.

Flesch wrote: "3 d5! Black cannot hope for a Benoni type counterplay, for White puts a piece and not a pawn on c4. Such sources as do consider the variation generally imply a slight edge to White with 3 d5.

I amassed about thirty games, the majority of which went Nf6, They had found an improvement for Black in one of the principal games cited by ECO. Subsequently I found a page Chess Digest booklet by Andrew Soltis entitled "Franco-Benoni Defense", but it didn't contain any games previously unknown to me in the 1 e4 e6 2 d4 c5 line; at least half the monograph was devoted to lines like 1 d4 e6 2 c4 c5 which normally won't transpose at all to the line that interests us here, that is the 1 e4 variety.

If White wants to retain the option of c2-c4 then of course he must choose Nf3. Then 9 Re1 Nc7 10 a4 b6 11 Rb1 surely not best? Re8 12 h3 h6 13 Bc4 and now "ECO" gives Qc8 17 Bf4 Bf5! This check is sometimes effective in the Modern Benoni but that is usually because it involves variations with e4 e5, not available here.

Only now that c6 is available Nxb5 White could choose between a-file play after 13 axb5 or piece pressure by 13 Nxb5 Qd7 14 Re1. Ne6 17 Rad1 Rc8 18 Bxd6 Rxc6 19 Bg3 with persistent pressure despite the symmetrical pawn structure and piece exchanges. Nb8 Not Chandler vs M S Tseitlin, However, a further surprise was in store for me. I conclude by giving my game in full. Maybe a reader will discover an improvement for White somewhere?

Ne5 10 Nxe5 when Bxe5 11 Re1 Ne7 12 Bh6 is also fairly promising. Ne5 11 Bg5 ! Obviously Ng4 12 h3 f5 Bxb2 13 hxg4 Bxa1 14 Qxa1 allows 13 Nxc5! Black finds the right answer.

Unfortunately he is under no compulsion to go in for Kg4 Nf4 20 Re4; I had expected instead Nf5 when I had hopes of some initiative with 16 Ne4 or 16 Ng4. Nc3 Be7 7. Bd3 8. Nge2 Na6 9. Ng3 Rb8 Qc2 g6 Bd2 Bf6 Kh1 Qh4 Rf3 Nf6 Qc1 Ngh5 Nge2 Ng4 Rxf2 Qxf2 Ne4 Qxf5 Nxd4 cxd4 Bxf6 Nxf6 Qf4 Ne8 Re7 Ng7 Kg2 hxg4 Kf3 Rb2 Qf6 Rxa2 Kf3 Rxg6 Qf4 d3 Ra7 Nh5 Kf2 Rg6 Oh yeah, it was a rapid game!

The Benoni Defense is a chess opening characterized by the moves:. Black can then sacrifice a pawn with The Benoni is very popular among amateurs, and is seen occasionally even at the highest level, with both Fabiano Caruana and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave using it in tournament games in Genesis — the name of an book by Aaron Reinganum about several defenses against the King's Gambit and the Queen's Gambit. The Old Benoni starts with 1. The Old Benoni may transpose to the Czech Benoni, but there are a few independent variations. This form has never attracted serious interest in high-level play, though Alexander Alekhine defeated Efim Bogoljubow with it in one game of their second match, in
